Yeah, yeah..9-2 on the home stand, yes they won as I said they had to, but you know what they beat the best college team in baseball, dropped one to the lowly Royals and most disturbing, couldnt throw a pitch the third place Rays couldnt hit..nope its over....there are some promising thoughts..1- Did Falvey assist with the draft in Cleveland? Lets hope so, they have built an incredible team.

Did you see those numbers of the Indians in the All Star Game? Ramirez 29 Hr's Lindor 25...I want some!

No we have A ball Sano, and the never gonna be great Buxton..(oh yeah his glove is elite) but his hitting is as bad as his defense is good..Jake Cave anybody? Im buying...

So lets start over..bring up the young arms give em a chance....but this team simply put is not good enough,,,,

While we are thinking other teams players, is Sucre for the Rays available?

Ok, it doesn't sound like adding (possibly) Buxton, Sano, and Santana in the 2nd half excites you. To me, you are not only saying the Twins should be sellers at this year's deadline, you are essentially advocating a rebuild. I am not ready to punt on the Buxton/Sano era yet. Not by a longshot.

I'm not ready, either, but the clock is definitely ticking.

It's 4th and 10. Are you really going to go for it?

I'm not going all in on this particular 4th and 10.

 

Not quite ready to punt, though.

Sano and Buxton are still young.It's 2nd and 10.  It would be nicer to have done better on first down, but there is time for redemption, even if we have to punt and get the ball back later.

Much better analysis than my original statement. Thanks.
